Mrs. Feineis is the best teacher I have had at Barrington High School. She has a great and in-depth knowledge of physics and made it my favorite class, my favorite topic, and intended major for college. The material itself in AP Physics 1 is very easy but because of this, it is very easy for teachers to expect students to know it without teaching it. Mrs. Feineis taught the material extremely well and clarified anything we needed help with. She is truly the best teacher I have ever had at BHS!
I love Mrs. Feineis! Don't get me wrong, her AP Physics 1 class was hard. But she is incredibly knowledgeable about what she's teaching, so she made it easier to understand. Just put in a lot of effort and you'll succeed in her class. Don't be afraid to ask questions. (Plus she's the most passive aggressive person you'll ever meet, but she's so sweet)
She is the most passive aggressive person I have ever met
Mrs Feineis is sweet and she totally knows what she's doing. Good balance of notetaking/lab days and workdays. She is always willing to help and constantly engages the whole class to make sure we understand. Aweome person!
Did not even have feineis but honestly the best teacher! she is so friendly in the halls. yall don't know what you guys are talking about.
I love Mrs. Feineis for real she was such a fun teacher. She is so nice and sweet and if you don't like her cause the class is hard just go in for help, she helped me out and totally helped me raise my grade.
Ms. Mandel does not know too much about physics and consequently discourages and avoids meaningful questions. But if you enjoy the Bill Nye theatricality of "science" (and who doesn't?) she's for you!
Talk to us like we are babies, but great prep for the AP test.
Mandel is a really good teacher. She teaches kind of slow for honors, but in AP it's better. She prepares you extremely well for the AP test. I thought I was going to fail, I got a 4.
Nice person, okay teacher. But 1000x better than Wolke.
one of the only teachers who's answered some of my questions with "I dont know"
That kind of shocked me... She's ok for an honors class, but at the AP level, she doesn't have what it takes to present the material and make it understandable.
I learned more from another physics teacher, who I didn't even have class with, than Miss Mandel. One of the worst teachers I've had.
Miss Mandel is a great teacher. She taught me a lot about physics and made me enjoy going to school. She is my favorite teacher.
